All reviews mayan ruins hotel zone small ruins entry fee crown paradise close to the hotel bring water archaeological site per adult well worth the visit nice place to visit pesos per person couple of hours walk around own pace lagoon side cancun sign
Nice surprise to find this archaeological site in the hotel zone. I really wanted to see Coba but with the heat it was a no go so when we stumbled onto this i was really happy. Only a few pounds to get in, it's not...More
And interesting site to visit. Despite being a small city, the place itself is gorgeous. But you will definitely get the most of it if you take the guided tour through it. Our guide's name was Carlos, he really know the history of this place...More
A reasonable place to while away half an hour (tops) but nothing more than that. Easy to get to by catching the 'R1' bus from Cancun Centro (cost = 12 pesos, approx = £0.50) one way. The entrance cost to the site was 45 pesos...More
We visited this site as an alternative for a very long taxi ride to the larger Mayan Ruins. For the price (less than $3 USD) it was worth it for a quick walk through these ruins. The grass was recently mowed and the area was...More
As an amateur archeologist, I had never heard of El Rey. While visiting Cancun, a merchant told me about this site located in the Hotel Zone. Naturally I had to visit. El Ray is an extremely small site 1700 ft north to south and a...More
First the entrance fee is just 55 pesos, and if you are around t there you can easily grab a bus R1 ir R2 for $12 pesos. So in essence don't expect something amazing and daceling, but is free and just around the corner b...More
We were staying close by at the Seadust and took the bus here one day. Even though it was super hot, we were glad we went. El Rey provided the opportunity to see ruins and history close by our hotel. Limited signage, but there was...More
El Rey ruins are very interesting and right in the hotel zone in Cancun. Just cost a couple dollars. There are tons of iguanas that are fun to feed. There are signs that say don’t feed but everyone does and the iguanas are used to...More

El Rey is a fine local attraction, but is really nothing like as impressive as Chichen Itza. It's much closer, much cheaper, not crowded, much, much smaller and has less impressive ruins. I can't speak for the museum as I... More

Coming from the airport, it's to the left (opposite the ocean) about a kilometer or so before you start to see hotels. I walked there from the Royal Islander resort. It's near Playa Delfines and the Cancun block letters that people take pictures in front of. There is good signage for it, so you will see where it is when you drive into the hotel zone from the airport. Hope that's helpful!
